My favourite dialect joke is the one about the Liverpool housewife whose husband is employed by Cunard - too rude for here, though!
Funny you should mention that, but one of our staff, recently retired, used to tell the kids in school that his dad worked like for cunard like all his life. Oddly enough, he never got laughed at. He was a scouser and scousers pronounce cunard like c'nard and put 'like' every other word or so like....

Bowtners pronounce it cue-nard, of course. :)

Has just found 2 more reasons to come down under!
Told you Aussie accents where good! ;)
 
I find a Geordie accent an extremely admirable feature of the male species (it's not so nice coming from a female).

The one I detest the most has to be scouse - it has a terrible reputation and I find it difficult to take anyone seriously when they have a scouse accent (it is worth noting that I am being derrogatory to my own people here - although you'd never know)!!!!

BTW - A true English gent talking with received pronunciation in a standard English dialect is most admirable too.

LMAO :lol: Don't you just know it! Gob****es the lot of them especially after they've had some beer!

But thanks nice to know that someone would find my accent an admirable feature (now grinning like a cheshire cat!)...but i think you should come over to salford to help me out, the only people that can properly understand me are Norweigen!!
 
Andy I can't believe you've done a poll, is it not obvious which accent is the best?! Ours of course! You can't beat a good Geordie accent!!

The Yorkshire accent is still topping the pole, thats because it is clearly the best!

As for all you so-called geordies, are you authentic geordie or are you really mackems, smoggies or sand-dancers??????

Couldn't agree more (not sure about the dark coats...I'm not that fussy!), but many a time I have embarassed myself in front of Irish men by telling them not very descretly that I find the accent very sexy and thus encouraging them to simply talk at me...it's all great!
